At the high-level part of the conference, which will also be attended by Environment Minister Erik Solheim, the PM will moderate discussions about economic measures tackling the effects of climate change. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is amongst the participants.  

Prime Minister Stoltenberg will then travel the next day to meet Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, holding talks and attending various Norway-Australia business events until 10 December.

Next on the agenda is a three-day visit between to the South Pole between 12 and 15 December to commemorate the 100th Centenary of explorer Roald Amundsen, the first man to arrive there, together with a team on 14 December 1911.

Whilst there, the Prime Minister will also stress the Antarctic Continent’s vital role when it comes to understanding global climate change. He will also focus on the serious consequences the region’s environmental changes would have on sea levels and the world’s climate.
